V.I.P. Mortgage achieved yet another successful collection of school supplies for Mountain View Elementary School in Phoenix, Arizona this week. This is the 3rd annual back-to-school fundraiser V.I.P. has held, collecting from employees more than two dozen backpacks and hundreds of supplies including pencils, crayons, glue, scissors, notebooks, paper, folders, construction paper, soap, tissue and wet wipes. The lucky recipients – a kindergarten class just starting its education.

Mountain View Elementary is one of Phoenix’s less fortunate schools with more than half of the students homeless and qualifying for nationally-funded free breakfasts and lunches. V.I.P.’s donations take a little bite out of the hardship these kids endure.
